Mid-Century Cocktail Dress Print

I am particularly excited for one contest that Spoonflower is holding in the coming weeks.  It is a contest to find the best print to use in the creation of a Mid-century cocktail dress/costume.  A costume designer at a local theater is looking for a print to use for a vintage pattern cocktail dress in an upcoming production of How To Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.  This is the design that I would like to enter into the contest.  What do you think?  Your comments are greatly appreciated!  Thank you!

This week I designed a couple of fabrics for my "Celebrate America" fabric collection for Spoonflower.  The theme for the contest that starts tomorrow is "Stars and Stripes".  I geared my designs to be all about America...very Fourth of July feel to them.  I hand sketched these designs, scanned them into Photoshop and added color.  I wanted a very playful feel to the designs.  Let me know if you like them!  I would love to hear from you!  My "Stars and Stripes" design is entered into this weeks Spoonflower contest, so please stop by Spoonflower and vote for my design! Voting starts on Thursday.  Thank you for your support!
